A better day...

Well, yesterday did improve after I went out and actually jogged for 15 minutes straight... That's a first for me... at least in my adult life! Today, I had an appointment with my personal trainer and with my therapist, so I'm feeling much better. My therapist actually told me that I could pass for 30 something... Of course, I have to keep in mind that I pay the woman; but still! I choose to believe that she was being honest. So, don't anyone burst my bubble!

Richard's knee seems a bit better. He stayed on the bench for his basketball game and hockey practice yesterday. I think that helped. Mathieu is looking forward to the second half of his hockey tournament in St-Pierre-les-Becquets this weekend; and, I'm pretty happy as well... My dear brother has agreed to take him! What a gem he is; and Mathieu's really happy about it as well. You can't beat that. I think the adult male company will do him a world of good.

I hate to admit it, but other than doing some laundry, the dishes, preparing a meal and moving a few piles of paper around, the house is still pretty much a mess. I think I'll need to call in professional help. Who am I kidding... When it comes to cleaning, I'm just an amateur, and this situation requires a professional...

I bumped into a colleague from work and a soccer-mom at the mall this afternoon. It was very nice seeing them. People have been so kind and considerate to me... It's heartwarming. I miss work but I'm afraid my brain is still not quite ready to handle any additional stress or any type of continued activity requiring concentration or focus. I do hope to see my colleagues before the holidays, maybe for lunch?

Well, that's it for now.

Take good care!

Hi Renee,

Glad to hear you had an "up" day for a change. I guess you will be on this roller coaster for a while before you can be on an even keel again.
For sure get a cleaning lady! I have been thinking of doing the same thing, but I have to clean the house a little before she comes in. At this point it's sort of Mission Impossible. Being a single working mother is no joke. You're always playing catch up. Hire a pro! Just imagine what it would be like to come home to an orderly house...sigh.

Hi Renee,
I think of you often, and like to "check in" on you by reading your blog.
I will be in the office next week, so it would be great to see you!
Take care of yourself,
